Yes and no. He was a pretty uncoordinated kick but he was pretty awesome physically. Moved like Peter Matera. I reckon he could have been developed into an effective tagger.
I have to give you a shout out SR.

Never thought of Jaxon and Matera in the same thought space.

But when you think about it...
I always wondered what really killed of Barhams longer term careeer besides that thing he called a moustache?

Do Collingwood supporters rate Hine? Has anyone got any stats on how well he has done over the years?
Sort answer - yes. Widely considered among the top echelon in terms of talent identification, doesn't do as well in terms of trading, shouldn't be left in charge of list management.

Flippant answer ...

Today, yes. When Collingwood are doing well then in Hine we trust.

Eighteen months ago many fans wanted to toss him out on his ear. When Collingwood are doing poorly we want to turf everybody out of the club from the President to the Boot Studder.

Considered answer ...

Hine’s role has changed a bit. These days he’s focused just on talent identification. Up until 18 months ago he was doing list management as well. List Management has now been given to somebody else (Ned Guy). As much as we can see from the outside, it appears things are running better with this new arrangement.

Hine was a Bad List Manager but he is Fantastic at Talent Identification.
